and the democratic party. and i think it is a really good thing that america is waking up, that they are seeing through this because of the tyrannical dictatorships, the way that nancy pelosi and harry reid are trying to push through this against the will of the american people. but if mr. brown loses the election, jamming down health care down the throats of the american people is nothing compared to what they are going to do. they will find some crisis, some way that they will continue to keep the power and before we know it we will have a hammer and sickle for a flag over the white house. host: on the republican line, joining us from san francisco. caller: good morning. it is a wonderful morning when we can have massachusetts, a historical state, help us, the american people to fight back what we see here. we have been so betrayed, we feel. the nation is in a mess. we all know what happened when we went into this financial crisis. we know that president clinton put out a lot -- that he change what existed in the banking system. and there he put in larry summers to deregulate everything. that

attest that these men and women were among the finest america has to offer. they did not shy from the dangers that they knew existed and they believed in the mission that they were asked to perform. they worked tirelessly in an environment that is always dangerous. i'm proud of the work that they did and the work that their colleagues continue to do today to keep our country safe. the officers who died in khost were true professionals. they were savvy officers who relied on years of experience to make judgments and to calculate risk. these men and women were deployed to an any of great danger and hardship and they did so knowing that the worst could happen. but they did it anyway because we as a nation are relying on them and colleagues like them to make the united states safe from the threat of terrorism. i realize that many people have a distorted vision of what it means to be part of a c.i.a. family. movies and books have made the life of a c.i.a. officer seem exciting. it wasn't until i joined the intelligence committee that i fully understood the unique sacrifices that the me
say. >> yes? >> again, from vice of america, president obama when he delivered the speak about the strategy -- youth strategy in afghanistan. he said that youth had the partnership with pakistan and we will not leave alone our partners. many afghan analyst, or some of them at least, they fear that after 18 months the situation of '90s when the soviet soviet union left, to be left alone to its neighbors. what do you think about that? >> i think if you look at what the president said at west pointe and how he and his advisers have qualified that since, mid 2011 is not the point at which 140,000 nato soldiers magically disappear from afghanistan and start coming home. it's the point at which we aspire that we will begin what i think will be a very slow, very small drawdown. here i think marc and i disagree. i don't think the politics of this in the united states are going to force this administration to draw down substantially before 2012. one thing i think is certain, we certainly will not have achieved lasting security change, if that's the case. what i do think is this, i think

of places in the world including the middle east and asia and the idea of america being hated in my old age as it were compared to what it was when i was a youth i take almost personally. the berlin airlift is who we are, not the tortures. and i wanted to bring that story out to the extent i can reevaluate who we are, where we came from, what we do and what we don't do and i think that is what was tapped in the american of tom brokaw's america the greatest generation and he talks about considering it not the first battle of the cold war but the last battle, last year battle of world war ii. but so in the and if i represent the american people in my heart, these are the people i want to be. >> is a marvelous story and we've just scratched the surface tonight. but i think we have time for questions and what we would like to ask you to do is if you would come to the come is there a microphone on this site? , here and queue up as the british say. i'm sure richard would be happy to take your questions. >> [inaudible] as i was listening to the reading of the book i realized how much of a hero tru
and report it later here on "america's newsroom". jamie: as you probably know the so-called under aware bomber came to the u.s. from yemen, but the reaction in airports seems mixed. some countries like england are stepping up security with plans to install full-body scanners but others, they're resisting the call for greater scrutiny of passengers on u.s.-bound flights. live in the london newsroom with more, brit, good to see you, how are the airports over there responding and what influence would the u.s. have since these flights are u.s.-bound? >> jamie, the good news first, and we're seeing a pretty fast response from at least some countries on this side of the pond concerning the new security measures that are being asked of them. let's start with amsterdam, that's holland, that is the airport through which abdulmutallab transited when he was heading to detroit. he in fact did not go through a full body scanner there, although there were 15 in place. i talked to officials there, they tell me they were being used on a trial or voluntary basis and also on european flights but within t

in 1995 and is far less so now, as there are so many people in the muslim world that are mad at america. very few muslims hate americans for being americans. in terms of airports, the watch word is not a silver bullet. if anything, this gentleman in detroit was a rank amateur. had he been a professional, it would not have the nabobs of job. for americans to somehow think that we have a great system to protect them, i think that is wrong. i think sometimes i wonder why we spend so much attention on the aircraft and system when we have 3000 or 4,000 miles of open sea borders. host: going back to your comment from a moment ago about the u.s. killing al qaeda one of the time, what should we do, does that mean a bigger military presence in places like yemen? guest: we are at the drawing board. we have not progressed since 9/11. we are fighting an enemy that basically does not exist. the american people, for the last four presidents, continued to tell americans that we are fighting an enemy that is motivated by hatred for freedom and our liberties. women in the workplace. liquor after the wor

agency that falls under dhs. and this is the way the homeland security system is working in america. see all the different agencies, right? it's not that this reports to this and then up to secretary. instead, every single agency that you see here reports inlandly, all of them, directly to the office of the secretary of homeland security. now, i want you to see how many different people and jurisdictions we are talking about. more than 87,000 federal state and local jurisdictions make up homeland security here in america. 230,000 employees fall under dhs. and that means all the different agencies, more than two dozen that these officials represent. and you have the tsa, customs and border protection, and citizen and immigration services, and immigration and customs enforcement, fema, and the secret service, and the coast guard. all of that today is what we are talking about when we see the huge web of agencies. not only is there information sharing among them but they are all reporting to the secretary of homeland security. it's up to that level to figure out how the different agencies a
